The trees of the Carmanah captured
my soul ...
where the spirit of the tree lives strong.
These ancient trees give off an energy all their own.
They bringing beauty, joy and much more to their beholder.
Predominantly hand painted or dyed cotton
(scant bits of commercial textiles); fusible web; machine pieced,
appliqued and quilted with some hand sewing;
buttons; Pearl cotton and Silamide
thread; cotton batting. Mounted on black foam core.
12" x 12"
This quilt series was directed by my eagerness to innovate and participate.
A constant desire to apply new painting techniques along with the annual Fibre
Dance Show motivated and inspired these pieces. Building around the love or heart
theme continues to influence my smaller works.
